The Most Surprising Thing

One of the most frequently asked questions about my trip to Vietnam is "What was the most surprising thing you saw there?"

It was this:

I never got a photo but I remember it well enough to draw it in a recognizable form, not exactly to scale but close.

Anyone care to take a guess what it is? The entire apparatus is 6 to 6.5 feet tall.

I am also writing about the most surprising thing. When the piece is finished, I'll post it. That will explain all.

I just got back from Vietnam. I did not see this item, but my guess is a portable shower? Many structures had water tanks on the top of buildings and houses in order to create water pressure.
